        Carte General de la Caroline. Dresse sur les Memoires le plus Nouveaux par le Sieua [sic.] S**

      Amsterdam: P. Mortier, 1700. A fine copy of the first map of the Carolinas to be printed outside of England, including an inset of Charleston with the names and positions of early plantations along the Ashley and Cooper Rivers, present here in the first state This is the first map of the Carolinas to be printed outside of England, and was included as part of Pierre Mortier's Suite de Neptune François , published in Amsterdam in 1700, and often incorrectly attributed to Nicolas Sanson. It is directly derived from the extremely rare A New Map of Carolina of 1685 by John Thornton, Robert Morden and Philip Lea. All topographical details are identical to those of its antecedent, however most of the place names have been Gallicized. Also, "The table of settlers" has been omitted in favour of the title caption. Amusingly a "Charle Ville ou Charles Towne" appears written in large letters near Cape Fear, while the actual Charles Towne is labeled in small letters further down the coast. The present map includes an inset detail of Charleston and the Cooper and Ashley Rivers with the names and positions of various early plantations marked along their banks. 'Carolina was established in 1663 when Charles II granted the province to eight favorites, known as the Lord Proprietors, who had helped him regain the throne of England. The original grant included the territory between the 31st degree to 36 1/2 degrees north latitude, from Jekyll Island, Georgia, to Curritiuck Inlet, North Carolina. Two years later, the tract was enlarged to include the land between the 29th and the 31st degrees north latitude, thus adding a large portion of Florida. The grant extended west to the Pacific Ocean' ( Degrees of Latitude , p.93).

        This Actuall Survey of London, Westminster & Southwark is Humbly Dedicated to Ye Ld Mayor & Court of Aldermen. By Ro. Morden, Phil. Lea, Chr. Browne.

      Sold by Philip Lea at the Atlas & Hercules in Cheapside and by Christopher Browne at the Globe the west end of St. Paul?Äôs,, London, 1700 - Morden and Lea's large and attractive plan of London and the surrounding country 655 by 1030mm (25.75 by 40.5 inches). Engraved plan on two sheets joined, extending north to south from St Pancras to Southwark, and from west to east from Arlington House (Buckingham Palace) to Stepney, a few old folds reinforced, a few tears skilfully repaired, and some minor dampstaining to banner. Howgego 42 (2). The most important public buildings are shown in elevation. Amongst them are some notable lost palaces, including Arlington House, on the present day site of Buckingham Palace. The house, built in 1675, was the residence of Henry Bennet, 1st Earl of Arlington. The freehold for the property would be sold to the Duke of Buckingham in 1702. Another palace of note is Montague House, home of the 1st Duke of Montague. It was situated on Great Russell Street, which at the time backed on to fields, and in 1759 was sold to the Trustees of the British Museum. The house would be demolished in the 1840s to make way for the modern day building. A great deal of the outlying area of the map is a patchwork of fields dotted with hamlets, such as Marylebone, St Pancras, and Cambridge Heath. Below the plan are tables giving names of the public offices, wards, and parishes; which before the Fire numbered 97 but only 62 after. There is also information on the halls and companies, markets, inns of court, prisons, palaces, and public buildings. The Thames is depicted teeming with sailing vessels, barges and watermen.Scale: 7 1/2 inches to 1 statute mile.

La mayoría están relacionados con la resolución que otorgaba a Georg von Hessen-Darmstadt (1669-1705) continuidad como lugarteniente del Principado de Cataluña. En "La societat catalana durant la Guerra de Successió a través de la publicística" (en Manuscrits, núm. 9, enero 1991, págs. 305-323) Rosa María Alabrus Iglesies dice que tanto el brazo militar como el consistorio de los diputados y el Consell de Cent adoptaron un planteamiento tradicionalista a la hora de respetar las instituciones catalanas. Sin embargo, la autora precisa que ello no quiere decir que dichas formaciones sociales privilegiadas no siguieran en ese momento a la nueva monarquía borbónica. La visión que pretende ofrecerse es de continuidad institucional, tradicionalismo que se manifiesta incluso en la concepción monárquica de la nueva dinastía, ya que Felipe de Anjou es Felipe IV de Aragón pero V de Castilla. Uno de los documentos que incluye el volumen tiene que ver con el rápido nombramiento de Luis Antonio Tomás Fernández de Portocarrero, conde de Palma, como sucesor de Darmstad en su cargo en 1701. Tal como recuerda Alabrus: "La reacció del Consistori de Diputats fou del tot negativa, perquè seguint el tradicionalisme jurídic-institucional, el monarca havia d’haver jurat a priori del nomenament els privilegis i furs de Catalunya." Sin embargo, y a pesar de la resistencia de los tres estamentos catalanes al nombramiento de Portocarrero, "la relació d’aquests amb la Corona es mantenia de manera cordial", como puede apreciarse en los documentos. La conclusión a la que llega la autora es que a lo largo de 1701 se consolida la aceptación de Felipe V, puesto que la nobleza y las formaciones sociales privilegiadas "veien en la seva persona una alternativa a la Cort en decadència de la Monarquia anterior." Pero no sólo las formaciones sociales más elevadas adquirieron protagonismo en el respaldo a Felipe d’Anjou: también la nobleza y la iglesia coincidían en su oposición a los Austrias. Alabrus Iglesies concluye que "El fet que el mes de març del 1702 els aliats declaressin la guerra a Felip V i a França no sembla pas que hagués modificat el suport que els diferents sectors socials donaven al nou rei borbó, sinó més aviat tot el contrari i les crítiques contra l’Arxiduc augmenten i se l’acusa d’afavorir les heretgies." guerra de s

        ESSAY CONCERNING HUMANE UNDERSTANDING In Four Books

      London for Awnsham and John Churchil 1700 - The fourth edition, with a large number of additions. With the engraved portrait frontispiece of John Locke. Folio, full contemporary paneled calf, expertly rebacked to correct period style with tall raised bands double-ruled in gilt and a brown morocco label gilt ruled and lettered. [39], 438, [index, errata] pp. A very handsome copy, crisp and in fine order inside and out, pastedown and free-fly renewed with proper handmade paper, the binding very attractive, sturdy and sound. A VERY EARLY PRINTING WITH THE PORTRAIT, AND A VERY HANDSOME COPY OF LOCKE’S GREAT ESSAY, the "first attempt on a great scale, and in the Baconian spirit, to estimate critically the certainty and the adequacy of human knowledge, when confronted with God and the universe" (EB). This was the last edition to be published in Locke’s lifetime. The fourth edition contains all of the additions of the previous three editions, including the portrait and the index. The principal additions include an epistle to the reader on Locke’s terminology and there are two wholly new chapters. The first on the association of ideas (book II, chapter XXXII) and the second being on enthusiasm (book IV, Chapter XIX). There are also numerous minor additions and corrections. Locke's ESSAY served as the most concrete manifestation of a new empiricist spirit, in contrast to the metaphysical philosophies of Descartes, Spinoza and Leibniz. Locke was inspired to write the ESSAY in 1671 after a philosophical discussion with friends in which he realized that no progress could be made before they had examined the mind's capacities and seen "what objects our understandings were, or were not, fitted to deal with" (from the "Epistle to the Reader"). "Other philosophers had reflected on and written about human knowledge. But Locke was the first philosopher to devote his main work to an inquiry into human understanding, its scope and its limits. And we can say that the prominent place occupied in modern philosophy by the theory of knowledge is in large measure due to him." (Copleston, A HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY). Locke's influence was widespread and was not strictly limited to pure philosophical inquiry. In America his emphasis on rational thought versus "enthusiasm" provided ammunition and philosophical grounding to opponents of the revivalist and itinerant preachers of the Great Awakening, and in the nineteenth century the "nature versus nurture" thesis was employed by Unitarians and other anti-Calvinist factions to argue that human nature was improvable through nurture and self-culture rather than corrupt beyond hope without conversion through a special act of divine grace. In England Locke had a strong influence on the literature of the Augustan Age, Sterne, Addison, and the members of the Scriblerus Club all acknowledging the currency of his ideas. "The art of education, political thought, theology and philosophy, especially in Britain, France, and America, long bore the stamp of the ESSAY, or of reaction against it" (Fraser, quoted in Grolier). Locke's ESSAY has passed through more editions than any classic in modern philosophical literature and remains a cornerstone in the history of human thought. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mappe-Monde Drésse sur les Observations de Mrs. de l'Academie Royal des Sciences et quelques autres sur les memoires les pus recens

      Chez l'Auteur Rue des Canettes pres de St. Sulpice, Paris 1700 - The rare first state of the celebrated world map by De l'Isle"one of the foremost cartographer's of the age" (Shirley) This highly important map proved to be one of the most influential world maps of its time, and is present here in the rare first state. De L'Isle was a much esteemed figure who, after being tutored by the great Jean-Dominique Cassini, became the geographer to the French Academy of Sciences in 1702, and then 'Premier Géographe' to Louis XV in 1718. Rodney Shirley notes that "De L'Isle's work is distinguished by its scientific basis, the minute care taken in all departments, constant revision, and personal integrity". In this map of the world, De l'Isle was among the first cartographers to re-establish California's true form as a peninsula, to give more or less accurate configurations to all five Great Lakes, and to show the full extent of the Mississippi. He was also one of the first to correct the attenuated form of the Mediterranean Sea. In fusing New Guinea and Australia, he followed William Dampier's presumed personal survey, but resisted the temptation to join Tasmania and New Zealand to Australia, an error soon to be popular. Curiously, the tip of South America is shown to curve sharply into the Pacific, a detail conspicuously amended in subsequent states of the map. The map also features the tracks of important circumnavigators including Magellan, Mendaña, Dampier, Van Noort, Le Maire & Schouten and the antipodean tracks of Abel Tasman. Shirley The Mapping of the World: Early Printed World Maps 1472-1700 , 603, plate 416; Wagner Cartography of the Pacific Northwest, 461. Copper-engraved map, hand-coloured in outline.

Title page in red and black lettering. Printer's device on title page. Remarkable work by Johannes Braun (1628-1708) the renowned professor of theology and Hebrew at the university of Groningen. A disciple of the Dutch Christian Hebraist Johannes Coccejus in theology, Braun adhered to Cartesianism in philosophical matters, publishing several scholarly, didactic and polemic works on the matter. He interacted with Descartes' chief intellectual heirs, Gottfried Leibniz and Benedict Spinoza. Braun corresponded was Leibniz. He knew at least some of Spinoza's works, and rejected the latter's alleged atheism. Braun exemplifies the early Conservative Enlightenment, which strove to integrate the new philosophy into a traditional orthodox theological structure. For him Cartesianism was a tool in a rationalist approach to theology and (particularly) in demarcating theology from philosophy. In this respect, his position is exemplary for the adaptations taking place in institutional philosophy around 1700. This book is profusely illustrated with 13 fine engravings (including 3 folding). Includes one plate showing the Molach. Spine and edges of binding darkened. Head of spine repaired. Front hinge starting. Minor browning and foxing along paper margin. Folding engraving facing page 225 repaired. Text in Latin with some Hebrew throughout. Binding in overall fair, interior in good+ condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      - Frankfurt a.M., J. Wust, 1700. Text in Hebrew and Yiddish, names of the diseases and some passages in Latin. Title surrounded by a border of type-ornaments, woodcut device on page g1. 112 pp. 8vo. 19th century half cloth (binding is firm, but small defects to spine).*Vinograd, Frankfurt a.M., No. 158. Steinschneider No. 5786,1. Roest I, 47. Zedner 34. Rare first edition of this important popular medical work in Hebrew and Yiddish, written by the physician Abraham ben Isaac Wallich and published posthumously with many additions by his son Judah Loeb Wallich, also physician. This book describes in Hebrew many diseases, e.g. apoplexia, phthisis, dysenteria, elephantiasis, pestilentia; recommendations for their treatment, instructions for the prevention of the diseases, dietary advices, and contains a treatise on the treatment of small children with fever. The names of the medicines and prescriptions of the doses are in Yiddish. Contains also instructions for proper doctor's bed-side manners (pages 65-67) and a doctor's prayer (of R' Yaakov Tsahlon) to be recited before visiting a patient (pages 68-72). Abraham ben Isaac Wallich was born in Metz, studied medicine in Padua, and went in 1657 to Frankfurt to practise as a physician. The German Wallich family produced many scholars, rabbis, and physicians. The family origin can be traced to the 14th century. Because of the Wallich's reputation one of them was even called to the sick bed of Louis XV, King of France. - Inside front-cover ex-libris of Paul M. Aron, showing Moses holding the tablets. Name on title crossed out in brown ink, small ink-stain on first 4 leaves, occasionally a light waterstain in the blank lower margin, lightly browned. A good copy for a rare medical manual in Hebrew and Yiddish, as most copies of this kind of books have been read to pieces.[(5748)] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
